Marathon Bungie

Before Bungie hit it big with Halo, it had another sci-fi first-person shooter series called Marathon — which originally released all the way back in 1994, for the Apple Macintosh (how time flies!). Now, almost 30 years later, the developer is apparently planning on bringing Marathon back.

This is according to the reliable folks over at Insider Gaming, citing anonymous sources. This new Marathon project is supposed to be a three-player, extraction-based shooter, with a focus on completing missions and, er, extracting in one piece. Team up, take on a job, grab any loot, complete your objectives, and then get out of there alive — the usual.

The report also suggests that it's also going to be heavily reliant on live service elements, with "seasonal rewards and progression" being a "huge" part of the experience. Not much of a surprise, given Bungie's much more recent history with Destiny.
